Philips continues their fetish with light - Light Frame

While many display/monitor manufacturers focus on the more common features of said product such as resolution, brightness levers, contrast ratio, etc., Phillips seems to have a certain fascination with their in house added feature - ambilight.  While this feature doesn’t really do anything to improve the image of your TV, it is marketed as a feature that helps you emerse yourself just a tad more than if you were watching the same thing on a plane flat screen.  The extra colors are supposedly that extra touch that just throws you and your eyes over the edge.  Personally, I don’t understand the point of it, but I digress.  Since ambilight is one of Phillips key features, it makes sense that it “evolves” with the other products in their line up as well as crosses borders into other product lines.  Introducing the Phillips “Lightframe” computer monitor.

As the name and picture suggest, the gist behind this latest gimmick feature is that besides adding a cool blue glow, is claimed to reduce eye stress/fatigue - something that is of upmost importance to persons spending multiple hours everyday squinting at a monitor.  The particular monitor above is the 22″ 220X1SW featuring a 12,000 : 1 contrast ratio, Smartimage technology (enhances contrast, color saturation, and sharpness), as well as TrueVision Technology for added monitor adjustments and fine tuning.  If you also share this weird fetish for light emitting from all possible places on your TV/monitor, scrounge up $285 and get ready to wait until July rolls around.  Yay or nay?
